Today marks the start of the fourth round of Contemporaryathon but my first time participating, in fact it’s my first ever readathon! The hosts are Julie, Chelsea, Natasha and Mel and this readathon will take place over one week, ending on Sunday the 17th.
There are seven challenges and I have chosen seven different books so I have one for each challenge, although I doubt i’ll actually be able to get to all of them this week. I’m usually not great with TBR’s if i’m honest so I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up changing a few of these around but for now here is my TBR for the upcoming week.
#1 Read your most recently purchased or acquired contemporary:
For this one i’m picking ‘After the Fire’ by Will Hill which I just picked up in a charity shop the other day. (I may have already started this one and so far am really enjoying!)
#2 Read a contemporary with blurple (blue or purple) on the cover:
‘Raze’ by Tillie Cole, this is one i’ve been meaning to get to for ages so I just knew I had to pick it for one of the challenges and luckily it has a gorgeous purple cover.
#3 Read a diverse contemporary:
I’m still not 100% on this one but i’m planning to try and get to ‘What If It’s Us’ by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli.
#4 Read a dark, taboo or emotional book:
This one was the easiest choice for me. I’m going to be reading ‘Last Kiss‘ by Laurelin Paige, the second book in the Last and First duology. I read book 1 last month and loved it so can’t wait to get to this.
#5 Read a book you meant to read in 2018 but didn’t get round to:
For this one i’m picking ‘Roomies’ by Christina Lauren. They’re an author i’ve been meaning to read more from for a while now so I don’t know why I haven’t got round to this one yet.
#6 Read a contemporary in a non-traditional format:
I’m thinking maybe of listening to Attraction’ by Penny Reid as she’s an author i’ve been meaning to try for a while and the audiobook is short which makes it perfect for a readathon!
#7 Read a contemporary with a picture on the spine:
Finally, i’m also hoping to get to ‘On Dublin Street’ by Samantha Young which has a picture of a girl on the spine.
Definitely going optimistic with this TBR so we’ll see how many I actually manage to get to within the week, but i’m really excited to be taking part.
